Calder: Sculptor of Air DVD was produced in France with Le Centre Pompidou.
One of the most important artists of the twentieth century, Alexander Calder (1898-1976) revolutionized modern sculpture. He freed sculpture from its stand and added movement to the art itself. His modernist creativity skyrocketed with his wire sculptures, an invention he dubbed 'drawing in space."
The exhibition at LACMA, Calder and Abstraction: From Avant-Garde to Iconic, created with significant cooperation from the Calder Foundation, explores the artist’s radical translation of French Surrealist vocabulary into American vernacular.
